We especially welcome submissions from scholars at HBCU’s.

Critical Perspectives on Human Rights Conference CFP (New York)

The City College of New York, CUNY, invites submissions for its Critical Perspectives on Human Rights Conference, March 13-15, 2019.

The UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights celebrates its 70th birthday on December 10, 2018. Since that statement of principles following the mass atrocities of WWII, the world has witnessed the spread of human rights discourse, norms, law, and institutions at both the domestic and international levels. Eleanor Roosevelt’s prediction that “a curious grapevine” would spread the ideas articulated in that 1948 General Assembly document seems to have come to fruition. Nevertheless, the aspirations of the Declaration remain far from fulfilled, as grave violations of rights continue to be perpetrated around the globe, often with impunity.  Economic inequality, racism, and multiple refugee crises have engendered and exacerbated the rise of political extremism.  Addressing such issues, as well as many others, the Critical Perspectives on Human Rights Conference aims to explore the contested legacy of human rights in increasingly uncertain times.  It seeks to foster dialogue and scholarship from a wide range of perspectives.  Conference organizers invite papers from scholars and activists who continue to view the human rights project as a moral and ethical challenge to power as well as from those who see it as an enabler of political and economic domination. The Critical Perspectives on Human Rights Conference welcomes proposals that reassess the origins, foundations, and contemporary forms of human rights discourse, ideas, and practice today, seventy years on.  


Conference organizers will prioritize proposals that fall within these ten broad thematic areas:

Historical and Philosophical Foundations of Human Rights

Politics and Ethics of Human Rights Practice

Critical Theory and Human Rights

Media and Human Rights in the Digital Age

Changing Forms of Warfare and the Challenge to Human Rights

The Future(s) of Human Rights

Basic Needs and Human Rights

Women's Rights as Human Rights

Health and Human Rights

Migration and Human Rights


Submission of proposals:

Paper proposals should include a title, an abstract of no more than 300 words, and a one-page CV. These should be submitted through the conference website no later than October 31st, 2018.  

Panel proposals should include a title, a panel abstract of no more than 500 words, three to four paper abstracts of no more than 300 words each, and a one-page CV for each participant, including the panel chair and/or commentator.

Presentations: Panels will be 90 minutes in length, and papers should be no more than 20 minutes each.

Individual submission: click here.

Panel proposals: click here.

Registration Fees:

The regular conference registration fee is $150.00. Early registration by December 31st, 2018 is $125.00

The fee for students is $75.00. Early bird registration by December 31st, 2018 is $60.00.

The Prose Poem as Memoir (New York)

Saturday, September 22 | 3:00 p.m. 

In writing about our lives, we find ourselves looking back at who we were as if we were telling the story of someone else. Through small group discussions, in class writing prompts and co-participant feedback, this workshop attempts to have participants use their own personal experiences as inspiration. How can speaking about these events help us better understand them and ourselves? How can creating prose poems about our past help others heal? We will briefly (barely) go over the rules of poetry, prose and memoir and shatter them completely in order to get at the truth about who we are now and who were then. 

John Paul Infante is an award winning writer and educator who has taught creative writing at Lehman College of the City University of New York and the humanities at the high school level in New York City. His poetry has been published in The Poetry Project and fiction in the Kweli Journal. His nonfiction won DTM magazine’s “Latino Identity in the US” essay contest. He lives in Washington Heights with his partner and daughter and spends too much time on Instagram. He hopes you will follow him: @infanteJP . He currently reading Nelly Rosario’s novel, Song of the Water Saints.
